Gut health affects everyone.
“Like the brain, our gut can also become depressed.” – Dr. Phil Kieran
Do you suffer from an upset stomach, unintentional weight changes, sleep disturbances, constant fatigue, or food intolerances? If so, you may want to pay closer attention to your gut health.
Modern life is stressful. Most of us will suffer from high-stress levels, poor sleep and a bad diet. Add to these eating processed and high-sugar foods and taking antibiotics, we all run the risk of damaging our gut microbiome. This can then affect other aspects of our health, such as the brain, heart, immune system, skin, weight, hormone levels, ability to absorb nutrients, and even cancer development.
Presented by Jonathan Healy, That Gut Feeling is a 5 part series that will answer the critical questions surrounding gut health, ask how we can take better care of it and explain that gut feeling we all get from time to time.
Throughout the series, we will chat with leading Irish and International experts, including Professor Luke O Neill (Biochemistry in the School of Biochemistry and Immunology at Trinity College Dublin), Fabulous Pharmacist Laura Dowling BSc (Pharm) MPSI and former Ireland and Munster star Peter Stringer (also, Army Ranger Bootcamp victor from RTÉ’s Ultimate Hell Week – The Professionals)
So, what will we be asking our experts?
- What is gut health?
- How can we improve it?
- What are the best & worst foods for our guts?
- How do Probiotics work?
- What is the data surrounding health supplements?
